Carina

A lifesaver

Carina had only started her position as Lecturer seven months before becoming pregnant and was confused as to the exact conditions of her maternity leave – and later her return to work. When would be the best time to start? Would she loose her PhD students? Did she have to make time for meetings? Could she accrue leave over the maternity time?

These are not unusual questions to ask and in particular in the world of academia with its wide range of regulations and flexibilities many academics feel lost. We helped her clarify her needs to her university and, a year later when she returned to us, developed an action plan with her regarding her return and the development of her career. We also worked with her husband when it came to his paternity leave.
